How did the Spice Girls manage to do it... :shock:
Simple, release a single a week before Chrismas. Guaranteed to go to number one at the time.
I guess it beats some of Simon's crap music.

Just seen this on the TV.

What single has sold over a million copies in the UK despite only spending one week in the top 20 of the singles chart?

Christ, this could be anything. No decade given or anything?

I normally love my music trivia, but this has me stumped.

Shite. Not my finest decade for music.

The Spice Girls? Don't even know if they were still going by then.

Nope, I will have to give up on this one. Damn.

No.

Clue. It was the band's debut single and has spent over 200 weeks in the top 100. Which might make it the longest chart run but not 100% sure on that.

The Killers?

I know Mr Brightside was in the charts for eons, don't think it made #1 in the "normal charts though.
